What do others think?

I prefer a world where every month I don’t have to wake up in the morning asking my friends in different cities in different regions if they and their beloved ones are safe after an attack. To me democracy is a channel to make EVERYONE happy so that no one gets to the point of attempting against others’ lifes.

Miguel A. Castañeda

There is no democracy if there is not respect for the legal framework. Democracy is above all being represented by a person, not a party, we could vote for, elect. It is a question of majorities, though dialogue and respect for the right of minorities must me granted.

Diego Canovass-Canovas

Para mi la democracia es el mecanismo por el cúal cada quien manifiesta su libre expresión y preferencia sin ser juzgado.

I’ve always been in an inner debate in regards to the potential of democracy. I believe there is a number threshold for a democracy, after which there will be a constant opposition to each other. Considering the example of India, the sheer size, diversity and distribution (economic, class, education) always leads to a compromise of sorts that are not beneficial to all. Is there a point where meritocracy is more valuable than democracy, a question that’s been keeping me up at night.

Democracy is a complicated thing which involves a number of values that are not really compatible with each other. But what it has at its core is the sense that the people are the object for which government exists, and that the people need to be given a way to influence the government and to protect themselves against the government.

Professor Richard Katz

Que yo sepa como participar, quiera hacerlo y participle en: la toma de decisiones, ejecucion de acciones, y vigilancia de los procesos que tienen como fin dar soluciones a las necesidades de mi localidad.
